Quality aluminium Bifold Doors designed & manufactured in the UK

...

Thanks to the influence of Grand Designs and our desire for more light and space, bifold doors have become a phenomenon. If you have the space to stack the Bifold Doors to the left or right, or on both sides, when they are fully open, then a Bifold Door could be ideal for you. Bifold doors can be fully opened to around 90 per cent of the full opening width, allowing you the flexibility to let in lots of fresh air and move around freely. On days when you don’t wish to open the doors fully, you can choose to have a single traffic door, allowing you easy access between your home and garden all year round.

KAT Aluminium bifold doors are made to bespoke sizes to suit your project and are available in seven colours from stock, including dual colours. Our door handles are designed exclusively by KAT and are made from stainless steel in a choice of six different finishes.

Material Information

...

Aluminium is the optimum material for manufacturing windows and doors and that is why it is widely specified by Architects for most serious new build and refurbishment projects.

Aluminium doors require very little maintenance, just a wipe with a damp cloth when needed and a regular check to ensure the track is kept free from grit and small stones to ensure the doors continue to run smoothly. Aluminium is more resistant to the elements than PVCu and is not likely to warp or rot. We offer a 10 year warranty on standard paint in a choice of 7 colours or 25 years warranty on Marine Grade paint.

Accessories

...

With our huge range of exclusive doors we also offer you a complete range of accessories from handles, to threshold options, to opening configurations.

Our KAT bifolding door handles are luxury products, made exclusively to a KAT design and crafted from Stainless Steel and guaranteed for 10 years.

Please consider your choice of ancillary hardware carefully because that is what you will eventually notice most when your products are installed. Check out the finishes on our handles because it is attention to detail that helps make this unique product range so exciting.

Safety & Security

...

Our bifolding doors are designed to discourage intruders, thanks to the master door security locking system and intermediate handles with shootbolts which can also be supplied with key locking. We fit a 3 star diamond rated cylinder to all Aluminium Bifold Doors. The whole system conforms to PAS 24 security standards.

All these elements prevent our bifolds being lifted off their base channel or being jemmied when closed.
